Good.

I do get the impression RCC is pissed off though.

I've got two red aces and am trying to play for more money, instead of simply winning the hand. I think I played it well enough to make money.

Whatever.



(I don't get pissed off over poker. Even when some uber-donkey foolishly fails to give me a free card.)

Okay, maybe not insane luck, I'd have won with a queen, a ten or an eight, roughly a 1 in 5 chance.

Yeah. I could have taken a big hit on the chip count but losing didn't hurt me that much.

Now I'm winning. Can we call the tournament on account of rain?

This afternoon I tried to check the main poker thread and could not access the SC forum. Maybe Pixy is working his magic behind the scenes, moving his entire site or something.

In fairness to shemp, his deadline is extended until noon EDT Tuesday.

Just a reminder that blinds go up on the next hand.

That is all.

You don't wanna see what's inside when the blinds go up.

It's ok, I'll hang out here with Jennifer Tilly and that blonde chick from Mad TV.

At least I fell with a Full House in my hand.

Okay.

That was a cool showdown.

I'm gone camping for a couple of weeks so I'll miss out on some of the fun.

Later.

Question on tournaments - how many hands do they usually last? Maybe there's no easy answer, depending on # of players, blind structure, etc., but is there a rule of thumb?

Just wondering how one decides when to loosen up their play in the later phases of a tournament.

I presume stack size will also factor into a player's decision process, e.g. lean on the short stacks or be careful not to chase if you're the big stack.

If folks don't want to give away their personal strategy in the middle of a tourney, feel free to PM me.

Or ignore me. :cry:
